Great beer! Great dark color, aroma a bit weak, medium body, toasty chocolate tones with medium to light bitterness, medium to light carbonation,. Overall well balanced. Would buy again and again.

Bittersweet chocolate and roasted malts power this nearly black porter. It comes in bitter initially but the chocolate and roasted malt form up as the bitterness fades. Not super complex but a pretty solid porter.

20 oz pour on tap at SeaTac Alaska Lodge. Anise aroma with some roast. Lightly sweet. Somewhat transparent dark mahogany colored body with a medium tan head. Starts with a mocha cocoa flavor. Nice maltiness. Light roast to finish. Pretty straightforward. Solid, but nothing spectacular.

Great chocolatey notes upon first taste. Some hints if roasted malts really shine towards the end. Not too strong. Some interesting bitterness, still pretty good tho.

On tap @ Anthony’s (SEA-TAC). Dark brown pour with some reddish highlights and khaki foam. Nose is roasty and a touch herbal. Some earthy hops, caramel, and black cherry. A bit of roasted nuts, too. Flavor has a nice sweetness of caramel, toffee, and black cherry. Decent hop character, though a weird rosemary sort of flavor to it. Slight acidic tang. Smells better than it tastes.

Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a foamy brown head. Some mineral, dark fruit notes in the aroma with caramel and nuts. Body is a bit thin. Pecans, caramel, toffee, and chocolate in the flavor. Earthy hops. Pretty well balanced but the body is a little thin. Ok.

On tap at Anthony’s. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Nice malty aromas. Smooth and creamy with tasty dark medium roast malt highlights. Chocolate and caramel lowlights. Tasty and in no way bitter. Actually a damn fine porter.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is roasty with grains, like there is some oatmeal in there. Taste is a little bit bitter and very roasty, but not overly complex. Decent beer, just nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Anthony’s (Sea-Tac Airport)
Dark color, nearing black, with creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts and some liquorice; light yeast. The mouthfeel is quite round: for once, a Porter with more chocolate than coffee; hints of bread and yeast; regular bitterness.
